We went for lunch a group of 20 for business lunch, the food in very quick succession to all of us, service was great as both our waitresses were very polite and professional, I am taking my family for dinner to celebrate a birthday and hope not to be dessapointed.

We went to Candelori's for our wedding anniversary last week. The food was amazing. This was our fourth visit there. We always make a point of going there when we visit Sydney. However, the service was woeful. We had at least five people attend to us, so no one took real responsibility for the service at our table. When we... More

Best italian restaurant in sydney. My girlfriend and I dine here often and the experience is brilliant every time. The food is delicious and the service outstanding. Our favourite is the antipasto board. We can't eat at any other italian restaurant because we just end up being disappointed. Well done Ross and the team at candeloris. You can tell these... More

We went to Candelori's for a Saturday night dinner and we were completely impressed. The place has been recently renovated and makes you feel as though you have entered a restaurant in the Star. The place has a buzzing yet sophisticated at atmosphere it's hard to believe you're in Smithfield. We ordered the stuffed Zucchini flowers for entree which were... More

Has been a while since I had been to Candelori’s and quite impressed at their new renovation. It has certainly brought the restaurant into a more contemporary dining experience. The food is excellent, large portions and plenty of flavor you expect from an Italian eatery. Overall impressed!

We have been to candeloris many times over the last couple of years and twice since the new renovations and menu were done earlier this year. Before our last two visits we would give it 10 out of 10 for all areas but since our recent visits the service and food has gone downhill fast even allowing for the beautiful... More

We have been going to this fine restaurant for about a year and a half now and I have always ordered the dish, Fettucini Bosciola. Over the new year my family and I went overseas visiting England, Italy and Malta and while I was there I was curious to find a restaurant that could make the dish better than Candelori's,... More

This restaurant has a lovely contemporary atmosphere and is truly a hidden gem. The staff provided excellent service throughout the night for my group, especially from the waitresses. I would recommend any pizza lovers to experience pizza from Candelori's - it is the best pizza we have had in Sydney. We had such a wonderful experience and will definitely be... More

My friends and I we went had a pizza night at Candeloris Restaurant & Bar. We were so amazed how thin and light the pizza was made, it was the perfect pizza we had ever had. We could not find a place where they would do such a great fresh crispy thin light pizza like Candeloris Restaurant & Bar. The... More

When friends of mine invited me to a restaurant in Smithfield, I said they must be joking. Well, call me surprised! Walking into this place is a grand, impressive experience, as if walking into a six star hotel in the centre of Sydney. It's stunning, with beautiful pendant lighting features, huge mirror features, impressive curved marble benches and a lovely... More
